— City of Berkeley Landmark - Designated 1986 —

The McCreary-Greer House and neighboring turn-of-the-century houses on this block are survivors of one of the first residential districts developed around the University campus. This house, with its original garden area and carriage house, represents a highly decorative version of Colonial Revival architecture.

Ruth Alice Greer, who was long associated with the University of California Education Department, grew up in the neighborhood and purchased this property in 1961. In 1986 she donated it to the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association to maintain and preserve it for future generations.
